Emma Biggert, a Westborough High School student, is collecting children’s books for the Kennedy CHC health centers in Worcester and Framingham. The books will be handed out during well-child and dental visits as well as at health fairs. Emma is collecting these books through the foundation The Jake Maxfield Connection, which was created in memory of her cousin, and focuses on community service and literacy.

Last year, Emma collected over 1,600 and hopes to reach 2,000 this year! You can read about her efforts here.
